In case of contact with eyes: rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguish fires with dry powder or dry sand. Water and foam are unsuitable extinguishing media
:
Dangerous fumes are released during fire.

In case of fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing

Accidental release measures

Do not inhale. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Use personal protection equipment.

Avoid release into the sewage network or the aquatic environment.

Keep away from water, take up with dry material while wearing respiratory equipment and protective clothing.

Handling and storage

Avoid dust formation. Ensure good ventilation when handling large amounts. Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charge. Avoid impact, friction and build-up of electrostatic charge; risk of ignition! Earth tanks and plant properly. Use antistatically treated equipment. Instructions for protection against fire and explosion: keep away from sources of ignition - no smoking. Take preventive measures against build-up of electrostatic charge (earth during transfer). Avoid jolts and friction. Avoid dust formation.

Keep only in the original container in a cool, well-ventilated place away from acids.

Keep container closed and sealed. Protect against atmospheric moisture. Store and handle under nitrogen. Protect against heat.
